Notes

This source contains the following fix - I smoothed out the splice in Eyes by crossfading it in Cool Edit Pro. The original splice had a one note repeat at the beginning (~2:39)and a ~2.5 sec repeat at the end (~3:18), very jarring. Because there was only a small overlap in the beginning the crossfade is still noticeable, but not nearly as jarring as hearing the repeats. Because there was more overlap at the end of the splice I was able to make the transition much more transparent there.

"Eyes of the World" has a 45-second splice from a cassette sbd.

Great Sound right out of the gate for PROMISED..
Half Step- just making it's 2nd appearance of 76.
With a quality recording like this you can hear Donna Jean getting right in there for the chorus.
"Hello, Baby, I am gone goodbye
half a cup of rock n rye"
Garcia puts some umph on the last verse before Rio Grande,, Their sound is so laid back. Keith!
Garcia's guitar work!! one fine Uptown Toodelo.
Classics the rest of the way.
with a rare Johnny B Goode 1st set closer.

Not bad but there's much, much better from 76. Really nice jam out of Comes a Time.

A great run in general. Not very well documented in the tapes. For what we have we are Grateful.

Archive sights the opening show of the run as a curators choice, so obviously there is something special going on.

1976 in general was kind of a warm up half-year in general, with the band playing less shows than normal, so for a multiple night engagement with jazzy interpretations, this show fits in well.

Could be the best version the band ever played of COMES A TIME. Sixteen minutes.... WOW!! Not necessarily as energetic as the epic 1977.5.9 Buffalo performance, but still noteworthy for its length and exploratory nature. Never in the sixteen minutes do they venture into other territory, sticking with the COMES A TIME mold and evolving it into its jazzy expiration into drums. WHAT's MORE GRATEFUL DEAD than that.

5 star recording and performance. No arguments. Up their in the top ten shows of 76' certainly.

Subject: Are the other reviewers listening to the same show??
Wow, this show is fantastic! Set 2 is worth an official release as far as I'm concerned! Just listen to the 1974-MLB-Esque freak out jam that comes out of the Other One Jam... The Eyes is a real knock out too. And the sound quality is pretty good to top it off. Definitely a winner from a year not given much credit.

Harkens back to 73 with highly exploratory OO. Eyes has swell jamming throughout, love the unique theme at 8:00, a very different sound for Eyes. Recording is a bit iffy for the picky ones, surely bearable though.

Subject: Very nice
worth it for the Other One alone
